TV Personality and American reality star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in a luxury residence Paris by two men posing as police officers.
The Police spokesman said Kadarshian was tied up in the bathroom as robbers stole items and jewellery worth €6m (£5.2m).
The Police also say the robbery took place at about 02:30 local time (00:30 GMT).
A spokeswoman for the 35 year old reality star, said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed”.
Ina Treciokas told CNN the robbery was carried out by two masked men with guns. Police sources told the Associated Press news agency that they were seeking five assailants, two of whom had forced their way into the house.
Kardashian’s husband, the rapper Kanye West, had to leave the stage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York when he heard the news.
He told fans: “I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show.”
“The loss amounts to several million euros, mostly jewellery. The total amount is still being evaluated,” police said.
Reports say the star has now left France, flying out of a Paris airport aboard a private jet.
TV host James Corden went on to defend Kardashian after cruel tweets about the celebrity, he criticised those making light of the incident.
He tweeted: “People making jokes about Kim Kardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend. Be nice or shut up.”
